Inspiring Kids to Start Surfing in Huntington Beach


If your kids are thinking about learning how to surf, bringing them to a surfing competition is the best way to get them inspired. Huntington Beach, aka. Surf City USA is the best place to find the hottest surf competitions happening in Orange County.


My husband grew-up in Huntington Beach watching some of the most talented surfers compete in the waves of the Pacific Ocean. While driving down the coast this weekend, we decided to take a stop to see the National Scholastic Surfing Association compete from the Huntington Beach Pier.




Our boys got to watch some of the most talented local surfers compete in the high-profile amateur surfing competition. They got to see kids their own age hang ten just like world champs. The day was like a magical dream as we sat together as a family on the pier cheering for our favorite surfers in the sun-kissed weather.


After spending the afternoon watching the surfing competition our boys got inspired to want to start surfing. We have tried many times to get them on a surfboard this summer, but they were too fearful until see the young kids compete in the NSSA competition. We ended the afternoon with an early dinner at Ruby’s Diner at the end of the Huntington Beach Pier. We got to spend the rest of the day talking about how we were right in the middle of the action as the surfers had some of the best wipeouts, and killer moves on the breaks.


If your kids are thinking about starting surfing, and looking for a little inspiration, spend the afternoon with them on one of the benches along the Huntington Beach pier watching the surfers. The surfers are not the only ones having a good time in the water – your family will be too!
